Vigil will raise funds for Japan quake victims
A group of Portland college students will host a candlelight vigil Friday afternoon for victims of the March 11 Japanese earthquake and tsunami.
The vigil is from 6 to 8 p.m. at Director Park, 877 S.W. Taylor St. It will raise money for Peace Winds Japan, which is working with Portland's Mercy Corps to provide help to people displaced by the natural disaster.
Organizers of the vigil include students from Portland State University, Portland Community College and a University of Oregon graduate from Japan.
